Last week, I guest posted a portion of this idea over at The Waffler-which is dedicated to helping people make decisions on anything they are ‘waffling’ about. I received some input on a few things I was ‘waffling’ about concerning my living and dining room.
But, here is the full and expanded version of just what is going on in my silly little brain concerning remodeling our living and dining room. And, I need your help (in more ways than one….)
Here are my inspirations for my living room in a nutshell. But, I married a non-typical man that actually cares how his home is decorated. He has given me the green light to redecorate the joined living and dining room spaces.
This is the dining room at present. When we first moved into this house, we went very basic with the color choice in both of the rooms.
Here in the living room at present. I’m read for something a bit more bold, full of style and warmth.
Here are some more of my inspirations. And since the pictures deserve a bit more justice, I will now expand and explain.

This was the beginning of my inspiration-turquoise painted walls with orange accents. This was also the turning point for Biceps to be ok with adding a little bit of color to our home.
I love these colors together and think I can pull it off in both rooms. The dining room chairs are presently a deeper orange than the above ‘cozy’, but you get the idea.

I loved the color of this room with the silver, black and fuchsia accents. My accents will be a bit more orange.

I am ready to dive in and paint the walls something similar to this color.

…and add a chandelier made from my backyard twigs and a brass light fixture spray painted white.
Here is where I need your help:
Do I keep the black couch in the living room (will it match the blue walls?) and the rugs that are currently in both of the rooms?
I think the orange chairs I already have will go with the turquoise walls-do you?
I would like to add window coverings-probably a soft ivory with a geometric border. What do you think?
Let me know what you think. I need you!
I don’t want to let Biceps down-he’s depending on me to make some good decisions. Once I see that turquoise on the wall, I may just loose it…..
Thanks -I can’t wait to hear what you have to say.
